Clone WarsEdit

After freeing Ziro the Hutt from prison on Coruscant, the bounty hunter Cad Bane brought the fugitive Hutt to the Grand Hutt Council on Nal Hutta. Ziro refused to divulge the location of his secret holodiary and was imprisoned by the Hutt Council. However, Ziro managed to escape with the help of the singer Sy Snootles. The Jedi Masters Obi-Wan Kenobi and Quinlan Vos traveled to Nal Hutt to apprehend Ziro. However, Ziro and Snootles escaped offworld with the help of Ziro's Mama.[5]

While on an undercover mission to save Supreme Chancellor Palpatine from Separatist assassins, Kenobi, who was disguised as the bounty hunter Rako Hardeen, and the fugitives Bane and Moralo Eval crashlanded on the swamps of Nal Hutta. The trio traveled to Bilbousa Bazaar where they obtained a starship to travel offworld. Despite being pursued by the Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker and Padawan Ahsoka Tano, "Hardeen" and the bounty hunters managed to escape offworld to Orondia.[6]

During the later stage of the Clone Wars, the former Sith apprentice Darth Maul, Savage Opress, and the Shadow Collective visited Nal Hutta and attempted to force the Hutt Council to join their Shadow Collective. The Hutts rejected their demands and a gun battle broke out between the Shadow Collective and various bounty hunters hired by the Hutts. The Hutt Council escaped but Maul's party managed to capture Oruba, who revealed that Jabba Desilijic Tiure was on Tatooine. After killing Oruba, the Shadow Collective departed for Tatooine.[8]

By 28 ABY, Nal Hutta was still considered a crime haven by many within the New Republic.[9]

Behind the scenesEdit

"George Lucas had some very specific ideas about Nal Hutta. He gave us some really rough sketches. There was to be this very swampy, these big pustual orbs sticking up where they would build their palaces."
―Dave Filoni[src]

Nal Hutta was first depicted in the episode Hunt for Ziro of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, based on George Lucas' ideas and sketches of how he envisioned the world.[10]
